Parlophone director of press Murray Chalmers will represent Radiohead (pictured), Coldplay and Yoko Ono, it has emerged. Chalmers will promote Ono's artistic efforts and her music, including her appearance at Liverpool's Bluecoat art gallery this week - her first in 41 years. PRWeek previously revealed that Chalmers had signed up EMI artists Kylie Minogue and Lily Allen as the first clients of his fledgling agency Infinite (PRWeek, 24 January). Chalmers is still recruiting for permanent members of staff to join the team at Infinite. 'I'm looking for anyone with an interest in PR for music and the arts,' he said.
